Twonk Hammer

Good morning world, its been a while since I’ve had a post up on the TOROcast website. Things have been very busy with Twonk Hammer and the new house.  I have decided that its time to give you all the quick and dirty run down of what’s been going in my world, Tom’s world a little bit, and the rest of the Twonk Hammer family. Continue reading below to find out where we all stand.

For the first time in about three months, I logged into my SWTOR account last night, and even then it was only a breif 20 minutes to take a screen shot for Ragorik who is now doing the State of the Community pieces for TOROcast, which you can check out here.

I have no urge to play it at all. SWTOR sucked me in from level one to fifty and spit me out on the other side. The game itself is a huge let down for me. Although, I will say (before you all nerd rage on me) that the updates are definitely taking the game in the right direction, and perhaps some day, I will return to what I have invested the last three years of my life in.

I cannot say its all bad though, if it were not for SWTOR, I may not have done a podcast. I love podcasting, which brings me to why we took a two week break. Surprisingly it was only a break from TOROcast, as you know Tom and I put out an all call a month or so ago to find replacement podcasters for JJ, Kyle and Myself. Two people have been chosen, and possibly a third on the way. Tom seems to have a lot of confidence in these guys so I ask that you give them a chance. One thing to keep in mind when listening to the new crew is they are infact new. New to podcasting new to working with a team of people such as us.

I have not yet left the show, and do not plan to do so until the new podcasters are comfortable in their positions. They will end up with my style of podasting when all is said and done.

During our hiatus some of you may have found it and some may have not yet, but Tom and I as well as a large crew of others have started a new podcast which falls under the genreal nerd category. We discuss three major topics going on in the nerdverse each week as well as we “rapid fire” over a few pieces with little or no info on them. I seem to have forgotten to add the name of the new podcast The Ban Hammer, which can be found on iTunes under that same name runs between 45 minutes and an hour and 15 minutes long.

I’d also like to add that TOROcast is now officially apart of the Twonk Hammer Entertainment, LLC family. Along, with The Ban Hammer, Tom’s new The MMT Show podcast, and the Twonk Hammer site itself.

If you haven’t checked any of this stuff out, we ask that you visit the other site, http://www.TwonkHammer.com and give the new podcasts a listen. Give us some feedback and let us know what you’d like to see added.

One last thing I’d like to add to this post before signing off for now, Twonk Hammer is looking for more people, from writers to podcasters, if you are interested please do not hesitate to contact us.

  1. This is just something that happens time to time. The great thing is that TOROcast will live on through Tom, and the great people they have put through hell to get on the podcast. Twonk Hammer has thus far had a set of very quality podcast episodes. If any of you are familiar with the Rooster Teeth podcast and its quality The Ban Hammer meets it head on!

  2. I would like to say a couple of things to Samm, and I may take up more than 140 characters, so I thought this was a better venue.

    I have no issues with a podcast host who doesn’t not currently play the game he is hosting content about, it is important to have a skilled host controling the segments and keeping things on track. As long as that host has a general familiarity with the subject matter, I think it’s ok if it isn’t intimate knowledge. This type of host works as a gateway to the viewer, hearing new things and asking questions on their behalf.

    Where I get grumpy is the rants. The outdated, incorrect or misinformed rants. For example, Keybindings are serverside, always have been, they are part of your character and unique to each character.

    If you can keep perspective I think remaining as the host of the TOROcast is something most listeners would support.
